They have to face a physical Michigan State team led by Derrick Nix (6-9, 270) and Adreian Payne (6-10, 240). The Cornhuskers will counter with 6-11 center Andre Almeida.  The good news is tha they have a solid guard combo of Ray Gallegos and Dylan Talley that can keep them competitive. Talley and Gallegos both average 13.4ppg. Nebraska doesn't have to win this game. They have lost three straight but they covered their last two including a 62-47 loss at Michigan getting 21 and a 47-41 loss at home to Wisconsin getting 9. Michigan State wins with defense, but their offense is producing just 43.7 percent shooting from the field in their last four games. Nebraska will force them to shoot from the perimeter and this will be a close game that the Spartans should close out late but won't cover.
